SOURCE: Amp will not come on ,no light

Yes!!!!!!!!!! Your remote wire is what tells your amplifier to turn on and off it won't work without it. Assuming your stereo headunit is an after market unit it has the correct wire for this. what you have to do is pull out you headunit, and in the back of the headunit where all the wires plug into your unit there is blue wire with a white stripe. this is the remote turn on wire. connect a wire to that blue n white wire and run it back to your amp, insert it into to the spot marked remote. turn your head unit on and your amp will power up... if you have all the rca cables hooked up your amp should be ready to go.... btw good choice on the amp, kenwood is the way to go!

Hooked up my amp it has power but power light won't come on won't power up front speakers work and have sound but it doesn't move to back


Make sure the remote wire is hooked up. You can run a small wire from the power terminal to the remote terminal. If it powers up, then you have a remote wire problem. You can run a remote wire from the blue power antennae wire of the deck.

I have a jl 500/1 amp hooked up in my car and the power light comes on for about 5 seconds then turns off. no sound out of the subs. it is hooked up to a factory deck through a high to low level converter....


hook up the remote wire ( or make sure its hooked up good) check your ground! ground wire not big enough awg wire and put on bare metal not more than 1 foot away from amp. bad ground will cause this.

I just bought a hifonics amp the brz2100.1D and when i tryed to hook it up every thing is correct as far as the wireing compared to the manual and the blue lights come on power light is on but its not...


MAKE SURE YOUR GROUND WIRE IS GROUNDED GOOD,,AND IT IS IMPORTENT TO HAVE YOUR REMOTE WIRE HOOKED UP. IT WILL BE A BLUE WIRE,,FIND THE HOT WIRE FOR YOUR TAIL LIGHTS AND HOOK IT THERE THEN WHEN YOU TURN YOUR CAR ON THE AMP WILL ALSO COME ON.THAT SHOULD STOP ALL THE NOISE AND POWER YOU UP.

I have checked all connections to my amp battery,head unit,remote or trigger wire,fuses,power cable,rca leads,ground wire,amp has a green led light on it indicating if it works ok,red if it`s not,light...


Your amp could be in protection mode! Sometimes turning up to high or wires touching will put in protection mode! It will have to be unplugged for a day or two to drain all power out of the memory. Leave accessorie/ignition wire hooked up, just not power and ground wiring. It should reset itself.

No out put sound


Check all fuses on the amp first. If the fuses are good then make sure the remote wire is hooked up. If you dont wanna run the remote wire from the amp to the stereo then all you need to do is run a wire from the remote on the amp to the power on the amp. if the remote is not hooked up then you will get NO SOUND

Amp powers on but sub does not come on


I would double-check your RCA's on the amplifier. You should hear a thud if you unplug them. If not they are either not hooked up or defective.

Cd player plays, but no sound comes out of speakers.


first off the amp gets power straight from the battery. the amp is used to power the subs. the subs are suppose to be connected to the amp only( never the speakers).

for the second part you mostlikely killed the wires. you should get some one to look at it and check the wires. thee speakers might need to be re-wired

Look at the enwood. I bet you have the remote wire hooked to the blue wire insted of the blue/white wire. The blue wire goes dad when you play a cd as it is for a power antenna. The blue/white wire is your amp turn on.

Now, if you do not have a blue/whie and only blue, then obviously that circuit in the radio is bad in whch case your only other option s are either connecting it to an accesory fuse or using a toggle switch connected to power.
